touring eastern europe down to croatia
We're thinking of doing around a 4 week cycle tour from Prague, through Slovakia, Hungary then down the Croatia coast. Ferry out of Dubrovinik to Italy. If there's time and it's possible and good we'd like to go down to Albania and ferry back across to Italy and fly out from Rome.
Is this a good route and what is the best time to go and what are the pitfalls ie. too many mountains, heavy traffic bad roads etc.
Is there a better route?
Are there any guides for these regions like Lonely Planet do? (unfortunetly they don't do one for the region. We followed their guide for 6 weeks through Cuba and it was great)
Like to hear who's done it.
